This section contains topics on installing and administering the Controller. Deployment topics provide information on how to install the Controller in the data center.
Certain administration tasks require access to the command line on the Controller machine. AppDynamics provides command line tools for common operations, such as starting and stopping the Controller and its individual services. In addition, some tasks involve using the administration interface for the underlying Glassfish application server, either the web interface or the command line tool.
- controller.bat/sh: Run as admin. Use to start and stop the Controller or its individual services, add Java startup options, and so on. To see all options, run controller.sh from the command line with no parameters.
- admin.jsp: Access basic operational settings for the AppDynamics installation, including data retention settings, tenancy mode, and more.
- Glassfish administration tool: Use the Glassfish admin tool, asadmin, to confiure settings in the underlying application server.
The topics in this section describe how to use the tools, along with many other administration tasks in the deployment.
